Getting value of field in Dropdown List within Formview

Posts: n/a
I have a dropdown list in a Formview that includes a number of fields in the

I want to be able to get the value of one of the fields in the Datasource
that is not the Datatextfield or the Datavaluefield from within a Formview

I know that I can get the data text field or datavalue field by using the
-Dim ddlCompanyName as DropDownList
-Dim txtCompanyName as Textbox
-ddlCompanyName = CType(FormView1.Row.FindControl("ddlCompanyName"),
-txtCompanyName =
CType(FormView1.Row.findcontrol("CompanyNameTextbo x"),Textbox)
-txtCompanyName.text = ddlCompanyName.Items(ddlCompanyName.SelectedIndex) .Text

But how can I get the value from a different field in the datasource?

Please suggest!!!
